In that case an other WM is already running (probbaly metacity), what
you need to do is first kill the old WM (your windows won't have any
title bars), start the new one, then exit the session. 

Another (more adveturous) possibility is to manually hack the
gnome-session using a text editor....

I'm running a new install of RedHat7.3 with default gnome install.  I'm
using the latest CVSGNOME, and it dies when it tries to compile pango.
So, I try it manually, but when I do this:
./configure --disable-glibtest --prefix=/usr/local/gnome2/

I get this:
/tmp/gnome/pango-1.0.4/pango/querymodules.c:175: undefined reference to
/tmp/gnome/pango-1.0.4/pango/querymodules.c:177: undefined reference to

  I've exported my path to the include /usr/local/gnome2/bin/ and I've
updated to include /usr/local/gnome2/lib/ then ran ldconfig. 
Am I missing something else?

If I don't use --disable-glibtest, then I get this:

*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.0.6, but GLIB (2.0.1)
